Welcome to 6th grade World History
In social studies, we will explore both ancient and medieval societies. In our study of the past, our goal is to better understand our present. What relationships exist between these past societies and our world today? What can they teach us about the growth and development of civilizations, in general? Are there any common factors in the development of these civilizations? These questions and others will be explored throughout the year. We will discuss the world’s progression from then to now and discover our own connection with the past. We will observe the world’s change from nomadic tribal life to settled cities, countries, and empires. Most importantly, the goal is for each student to realize that studying history is not only memorizing facts, but it is learning to understand and accept ourselves and each other.
